Not Made for This World

Hi, this is Joni Eareckson Tada. As Christians, you and I are not made for this world. Why is that? Well, our hands, feet, eyes and ears equip us for physical experiences on this planet made of water and dirt—our ears process sound, our eyes register sights, our noses sniff fragrances, our stomachs digest food. All these things are so very, very physical. But at the same time, you and I are also spirit. God has set eternity in the heart of man. It’s that’s why we squirm and groan, yearning and longing for something that this world with all its physical-ness can never give. It makes for incredible tension, don’t you agree? And so, if you’re feeling that tension today, if the weariness and daily-ness of your earthly life is weighing you down… Release the tension with Colossians chapter 3. Fix your eyes on heavenly glories above where every yearning and every longing will be fulfilled.
